Hi I love the theme. My customer would like me to use the background image (site_bg.jpg) I placed it in the proper image folder, but I have no idea how to make it display. (way too much css for me to grasp there) Can you guide me on this? Otherwise the store is fully set up and ready. Thanks

I have had that setting all along. Still not showing up. Perhaps there is something else? Website is http://gopfurniture.net/store/

Hi LenFarneth,

I see you have the first theme activated. These one as default has a background color instead of a background image, that’s why you can’t see the image. All you have to do is go to YOUR_SITES_ROOT_DIRECTORY\includes\templates\mars\css\stylesheet.css and on line 5750 change this
.boxed {
  background: #f8f8f8;
}
to this
.boxed {
  background: url(../images/theme_1/site_bg.jpg) repeat center top;
}

and than the background should show up.

Also make sure you change the “side_bg.jpg” to the image you want in the “images/theme_1” folder :)

Hi daniel_lin,

At the moment there is no option in the admin (will try to integrate one in the next update) but you can disable it manually by going to the file: YOUR_SITES_ROOT_DIRECTORY\includes\templates\mars\common\tpl_main_page.php and delete the code from line 147 to 176.

Hi,

How do I remove the very thin scrollbars for the pages? I’d rather have the standard browser rendered scrollbars than the thin one, they just aren’t intuitive enough for me.

Thanks in advance, IC

Hi

To disable it go to:
YOUR_SITES_ROOT_DIRECTORY\includes\templates\mars\jscript\script.js
and delete or comment this line (line 42):
$("html.gt-ie8").niceScroll(....

I would like to have the category menu appear on all pages—including the main page. What do I need to edit to make this happen. I see how to remove the main page slideshow but nothing I try gets a menu on all pages

Thanks. This will be online at crimescene.com/store soon

I mean the menu on the side. I have a long category list and it doesn’t seem to be able to be in the top pulldown menu without being a big ole mess. is there a way to have my categories also available via the top but not as tabs—but as a pulldown menu similar to the mobile menu.

LoxDesign

Hi Tom,

You could display the mobile menu by doing 2 things:

1 – Go to file

YOUR_SITES_ROOT_DIRECTORY\includes\modules\mars\js_header.php

and comment the function navCheck(); on line 713 and 719 like this
// navCheck(); 

2 – Go to file

YOUR_SITES_ROOT_DIRECTORY\includes\templates\mars\templates\tpl_modules_categories_tabs.php

and change this line
<nav class="nav">
to this
<nav class="mobileNav">

This way you would have all the time the mobile version of the menu displayed.

Hope I could help. Regards, LoxDesign

I just started testing template and like to know why the PSD files do not include the sample images used to promote template. I liked the formatting, if it was included then i could have replaced images with mine and tweak formatting little as per my needs…...... any help?

LoxDesign

Hi Time111,

If you want to check out the formatting of the images just go to the “images” folder in your Zencart folder after you installed the theme. You will find a lot of “mars_…” folders with sample (placeholder) images which have the same size like the ones used in the online demo.

Hi arbelariel,

Hi, I want to change the link of the Faqs on the header cause I use FAQ manager. How can i achieve that? Thanks.

LoxDesign

Hi

To modify the FAQ’s link check out the “YOUR_SITES_ROOT_DIRECTORY\includes\templates\mars\common\tpl_header.php” file line 57.

Regards, LoxDesign

Hi. Is it possible to add more links to the header? I want to add links to shipping and privacy pages, and I found these info can be defined in the define page editor. Is there any method to do that? Thanks.

LoxDesign

Hi daniel_lin,

Yes Its possible just go to the same file I mentioned in the previous comment (“YOUR_SITES_ROOT_DIRECTORY\includes\templates\mars\common\tpl_header.php” file line 57.) and just before the “ul” closes on line 59 just add another list item like this “

  • Privacy Policy
  • ”.

    Regards

    Hi, I’m thinking to put this line, rel=”alternate” hreflang=”x” for each language URL But I can’t find which file should I edit. Can you tell me where is it? Thanks in advance.

    LoxDesign

    Hi bluenoteb5,

    Check out the file:
    "YOUR_SITES_ROOT_DIRECTORY\includes\templates\mars\templates\tpl_languages_header.php"
